The GIGABYTE G5 GD laptop we reviewed earlier last year was very popular and is one of the most frequently inquired videos in the past few months. That older model featured an 11th-gen Intel CPU but Alder Lake has shown us its got improvements in both power and performance, at least for mobile. Today, we’re putting the updated GIGABYTE G5 GE through our laptop test suite to see what improvements we get from last-generation.
As mentioned, the model we’re reviewing is the GIGABYTE G5 GE, the GE denoting its configuration specifically an Intel Core i5-12500H plus an RTX 3050. This may vary by region so please check with your local GIGABYTE website or dealer to confirm the correct specification. The Philippine configuration will have a linear upgrade in terms of spec from the previous G5 GD with the GIGABYTE G5 GE sporting an Intel Core i5-12500H while the RAM and GPU remains the same at 8GB DDR4-3200 and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 laptop graphics card.
This isn’t purely a CPU upgrade as that new platform also means that it brings more modern IO to the table for Alder Lake laptops. We’ll check out more of what’s changed in IO as well as everything else in this review of the GIGABYTE G5 GE gaming laptop. Read on!
